Eat Less. KeepMoving: Anything that uses energy (calories) will help lose weight, as long as she does NOT eat or drink back more calories right after the activity. Examples: if walking, take a longer route; use stairs instead of elevators; take multiple trips to and from the car when unloading groceries; park a block from school and walk there with the kids; at home, skip dessert and go walk around the block instead.
